Office Culture. A big subject.

I saw a post today on LinkedIn asking “Is this office culture?” as they have just installed a cinema in the office…

That’s great but my first thought was “when in the day would I have time to sit and watch a film at work!?” I wouldn’t!

So it prompted a thought in my head. What makes a good office culture? Is it a dog? It's proven they can make you more productive but as much as I love my pup, I’m not sure. Is it having a beer fridge, a bar, a ping pong table, a slide instead of a lift, a gym, a bouncy castle…

Now I’m sure this won’t make me very popular, but can I throw an old-fashioned idea out there? I think a good culture is where everyone has the same work ethic and drive. What I mean by that is, when everyone is doing well and the company is doing well, this instantly motivates me and I can honestly say gives me that buzz in the morning where I think “I can't wait to get to work”.

What do you think? Does your office games table help provide your culture?
